Report: Next gen E-Class to be larger, sportier, returns with inline-six

Germany’s AutoBild reports that the next generation 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will sport a complete new design, rumored to be larger, more aerodynamic, and sportier in nature.

The new E-Class is being designed from the ground up on the company’s latest rear-wheel drive modular architecture. A long-wheelbase model will also be produced to cater to demands for chauffeured motoring in foreign affluent markets.

A total of five body styles are expected: the common sedan, a long-wheelbase sedan, a wagon, coupe, and convertible.

Engines are unknown, though previous reports have indicated Mercedes-Benz’s return to the use of the inline-six. That said, speculation points to a new twin-turbo inline unit displacing 3.0L for around 367hp, 435hp as well as a new 2.9L diesel straight-six good for 313hp and 400hp. Plug-in hybrid and hybrid variants are also in the mix. Internal combustion assistance might come from the choice of a 2.0L gas or diesel engine mated to an 122hp electric motor.
